    Haven't managed to get over 220.5 lbs yet.

    I should probably get back on my protein.

    Any tips for gaining muscle without having to become my own personal wolfgang puck. (don't have time to cook and cater to my diet as much b/c of law school)

    Exactly.

    There is a certain ratio of protein intake to muscle mass that is required to maintain and to build. I forget what it is though.


    Peanut butter, Tuna, Eggs, Soy.

    Did my back and shoulders after work today. For dinner tonight, I'm going a bit carb heavier than usual and have chicken with quinoa and spinach.

I have been putting time together first. I have been doing 30 minutes on treadmill and situps but not both 5 days a week and not the 1 hr on treadmill like I wanted and made goal.

    Hubby has recently gotten back into going on the treadmill every other day basically- he fell out of it for a while and just did push ups and sit ups.

    I am needing to learn how to refocus and replan my day now that I have more things I am juggling.
    Hey, that doesn't sound so bad. And I like that you realize you need to adjust. Lifestyles change over time, and successful exercise programs adjust to that.

    Since you did something each day of the week, I'll be happy to not count it as any cheats unless you want me to.

    Well, what are your options? When you do cook, always make multiple servings. That way you have leftovers. When you eat out, make sure you get enough protein and calories. You burn alot through your exercising (edit: I mean MMA training), which actually hurts your "gain muscle" goal a bit. To compensate, you need to make sure you are eating enough.

    Not gaining weight? Eat more. If you continue exercising, and eating the right foods, you should have some luck.

    But I'm not using it to replace chocolate. Because it's not chocolate. It's for insulin management.

    Yikes, I didn't tweak my hamstring, I strained/sprained my knee. I'm going to rest it for a bit more and then do some low impact cardio later in the week.

    1 gram protein per pound. Start there. If you can stuff that much down, try for 2 grams per pound.

    And eat more real food.

    Peanut butter, protein and oatmeal. Mix and refrigerate. Here is a couple of recipes. But you can just throw them together any old way as long as they are the right consistency.

    Like Biax said, get 2 grams of protein per kg.

    Does it matter what portion of the protein intake is real and what portion is whey?
